    126mph traps off of an 8.3L V10 with twin turbos? Jesus... that is kinda sad.

    Seems like a pretty good time to me. Take into consideration that its a truck with no weight in the back at all.

    So? You can always toss on slicks, and the lack of weight in the rear becomes less of an issue (saying no weight in the back is daft considering the rear end, transaxle, etc).

    Also it is important to note that I wasn't talking about "times" I was talking about trap speeds, clearly.

    To me anything over 110mph trap is a pretty quick street vehicle.


    Considering that the truck puts down 800bhp, and weighs somewhere in the neigborhood of 4500lbs. with the aero of a dump truck, I would have to say the 126mph is good. Not great, but definitly a solid good.
    Also as far aswe ight distribution, well, I would guess that the split would be in the 65/35 fr/rear area. Can't think of any trucks with a rear end AND a transaxle so i'm gonna have to drop the D bomb on you for that one lol!

    I meant differential lol and I don't know where I was going with that. FUCKER! :D

    Anyway, the traction doesn't have THAT much of an effect on trap speeds if they are measured properly lol... Supra for example ;)

    What I'm saying is, 8.3L and twin turbos should net me more than the trap speed of the upcoming Z06, aerodynamics be damned.
